The help file section 3.3.2. explains the file rename "A"B" mask and includes the following information:
-----------------
The following are the optional find-and-replace operation codes:

- Name operators. These indicate which sections of the filename are to
be targeted for replacement. Only one name operator may be used.

N - Name section only. (Default). The operation will be
performed only on the name section of the filename. Periods
in the "old" string will never match the extension period.

E - Extension section only. The operation will be performed only
on the extension section of the filename. Periods in the
"old" string will never match the extension period.

B - Name and extension sections separately. The operation will be
performed on both the name and extension sections of the
filename. Periods in the "old" string will never match the
extension period.

X - Name and extension sections together. The operation will be
performed on both the name and extension sections of the
filename. Periods in the "old" string will match the
extension period. (The eXtension section is treated as if it
is part of the name section).
---------------
Changing the behaviour for directories by making X the default would introduce an inconsistency, which is undesirable
